Boys Over Flowers Episode 19 Review

And once again, it is a Tuesday… another day to satisfy BOF addicts like ourselves and a time to give us a dosage of our weekly fix which is only good for another seven days…

Just like before, i am sharing my reactions to this epic melodrama and if yesterday’s episode was brought to us by the words You’re starting to piss me off Jaekyung… Today’s episode is brought to us by NASA’s rocketship… coz that’s where i want to tie Mama Kang outside of so that she can finally disappear from the face of the earth (and hopefully Jaekyung packs her bags and goes with her)…

So we start off today’s episode where we left off… No, not with me wanting to drag Jaekyung out of Junpyo’s bed by the roots of her hair kicking and screaming but with Monkey girl asking Junpyo if he wanted to make a bet with her which Junpyo MUST HAVE been wishing for all his life judging from how quickly he ran away from her…

However, just when i was about to applaud Junpyo’s tenacity in keeping away from Jaekyung, the next scene showed them playing video games as if they have been exchanging beauty tips and fashion secrets all their lives…

WTH, GOO JUN PYO, HOW COULD YOU? Since when did you start getting chummy chummy with THAT GIRL?

When you know that someone is hung up on you and you are TOTALLY not into her… YOU DISS HER… D-I-S-S! You don’t go around supermarket shopping with them good-naturedly and smiling like you are having the grandest, good, ole time of your life… You definitely don’t go power tripping over who gets the most noodles in the cart and feeding each other sample ham from the food counter just like (Oh no… dare i say the word?) you are *gasp* Flirting! Dammit… didn’t they teach you that in rich heir school?

And why, oh why must the PD taint that ramen scene which was the only ray of sunshine to my otherwise bleak Jundi life yesterday by having the same thing happen with Monkey girl? WHYYYYYYYYYYY???*shouts out to the heavens*

I wish the ham that Jaekyung and Junpyo have both eaten had been left in that counter for weeks on end and that they’d get kickass diarrhea as their comeuppance! HA! That would teach them!

On the other hand, JIHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! Why don’t you just take a knife and drive it straight through my heart? You poor boy, you… Why don’t you just kiss and make up with gramps? It’s obvious that you miss each other so…

Heck, your walking around lost in the rain makes me just want to give you MY grandfather so that you can call him your own… However, if you don’t want that, i could also give you a family just like Jandi could… and i mean that in a way that i’m sure that monk does not mean it…  (I am available anytime… just give me a text from your uber cute Haptic phone…)hehehe!

But what’s that? Is that a big fat splash and a honk that i’m hearing? I think that is the sound of my Jundi ship sinking even more and my HooDi ship temptingly inviting me to come over… How sweet was it when Jandi was just standing there in the rain waiting for Jihoo wordlessly at his time of need, just like what he has done so many times for her?… These guys make me want to get wet myself with my better half while it’s pouring, threat of acid rain and leptospirosis be damned…

OMO! and Jihoo in Jandi’s embrace and his bed, drawing Jandi and her hand close to him as if he doesn’t want to let go? *swoons, melts and dies* And just when I was almost convinced that they really are meant to be together, it doesn’t just end there… is that… is that Jandi’s face softening just like she is starting to grow tender feelings for Jihoo again? *tears in my eyes, tightening in my chest then waves goodbye to jump to the HooDi ship… BAH-BYE GUYS!*

But oh no! Why is Junpyo, pacing around restlessly, waiting for Jandi to come home with that worried expression on his face? GAHHHH!!!! I am lassoed back in… ABANDON TRANSFER…ABANDON TRANSFER… back to the JunDi ship… (I swear this series is turning me inside out that there would come a time that all this shipshifting between JunDi and HooDi would just make me shortcircuit and die…)

DARN IT PD! You sure do know how to pull our strings…However, there is still a sadistic part of me that wishes that Junpyo knows that Jandi is taking care of and cooking like a WIFE for Jihoo at his home that would make him throw a rage and just kiss Jandi to kingdom come to make her realize that he,Junpyo, still rules… (OH YEAH! *said ala Woobin*)…

And so morning came and is my wish coming true? Alas, but no… it is only Junpyo raging at Jandi like a naggy wife about her not coming home the night before… Tell him off Jandi! Tell him Off! Darn it Junpyo… you made a fool out of her in Macau and now you expect her to come home just because you tell her to… Read my lips… SERVES YOU RIGHT and BUGGER OFF! (actually, I have words far more stronger than this but I might offend others in this forum… hehehe!)

However, just like in the past… Junpyo always has a redeeming factor and for this scene it is his brotherly love and pizza buying spree for Gang San that got to me… (yeah right… when all else fails and you can’t woo the sister… use her family… Boy… this Junpyo sure knows what he’s doing…)

And how cute was he when he was eating those noodles raw and trying to cook from his turned off stove? AHHHHH… no wonder Jandi can’t get over him…

Moving along, Mama Kang comes home from a trip from hell where she checked in on her boss named Lucifer… What? Ahhhh… it’s just Vancouver… (sorry about that guys I thought that’s where she’s from… ) And just for us to get to know her a little bit better, it seems like Mama Kang’s really into espionage and photography as her past time… I swear the FBI needs someone like her on their team… If she can get pictures like these of Jandi wherever she goes, I swear we’d never have any more problems with Wanted fugitives…

Using her extraordinary hound like tracking abilities, Darth Mama sends her mininons to where Junpyo is slumming it and interrupts him in the middle of his “I would eat this ramen like chips snack spree”… I would have already cursed the TV at that point due to frustration but that scene where Junpyo was being dragged and was shooting lasers from his eyes at Jihoo made me totally squeal like a fangirl (I swear Jandi’s hair is sooo long for having these two hot guys always fight over her that we could have made a freeway out of it going straight from LA to San Francisco…)

Jihoo seeing the commotion and being his normal, noble Prince Charming self somehow sensed trouble and invited the F2 to Jandi’s place for some bonding activities, which is really a cover up for what he really wanted to tell her which is “The Siths are coming so we’re here to go all Jedi on you”…

Anyways, Mama Kang once again took time out of her busy schedule as CEO extraordinaire to hoof it where Jandi lives just to be able to call her a H-O-O-C-H-I-E… (Yeah, yeah… we’ve heard that before… takes one to know one…widen your vocabulary Darth Mama there are other words to call her by…you should have saved on gas and just texted her…) So Jandi took it like a woman and with the support of F3 was able to make it without breaking down in front of the enemy…

The next day, Jandi went home to find GaEul and the F3 once again at her rooftop home … After an inquisitive stare and some explaining they have relayed that they will help her make over her home to cheer her up… (Because there is nothing in this world that would cheer you up like the smell and fumes of Drying Paint… GOOD TIMES…) It’s also a good thing that YiJung was sober otherwise, he might have rained on their parade and botched up the color scheme judging from how he’s been acting lately… heaven forbid!

Okay… and so we see… WTF? WHY THE HELL IS LYPTIKA’S ACCOUNT SUSPENDED? DID MAMA KANG’S MINIONS TRACKED THAT DOWN TOO? And just when I was in the middle of watching… Darn you mama kang! Darn you!

(after much angsting and searching we’re once again back to regular viewing … thanks to viiki… TAKE THAT KBS! WE ADDICTS FIND WAYS!)

So going on with this recap, Monkey girl is once again at Junpyo’s home (doesn’t she ever go home? What the… where in the world does this girl live?) while Secretary Jung looks on as his mind probably calculates his pension (right hand man’s days are numbered since Mama Kang found out that he is standing president of the JunDi fans club)…

And so Jaekyung opens her mouth to once again reveal that her IQ has gotten another few points lower as she suggests to Junpyo to have a date at Jandi’s home… (HELLO? Ever heard of a mall? Or a park?) …

Any which way, Jaekyung along with Junpyo, who grabs at the opportunity in his desire to see Jandi (I hope… and not just because he wants to spend time with monkey girl any way he could)… make their way to Jandi’s home, just in time to see GaEul suggest a game of truth or dare which Jaekyung excitedly said that they would join… (GaEul, you fox! I bet you just want to lie through your teeth to YiJung so that he can kiss you… hehehe!)

Judging from the F3, Gaeul and Jandi’s reaction upon Jaekyung and Junpyo’s arrival … this is exactly what they were looking forward to just like how they look forward to going to the dentist when they are scheduled for root canals… However, the game must go on and it begins… AND I LOVE every single angsty moment of it! (Subs, where are you?)

To name a few, Woobin suggesting that a French kiss should be the punishment (he should have been the PD of this show…), Jihoo’s answer of “I’m thinking about it” while looking at Jandi tenderly when asked by Yijung if he’d love anyone else like Suh-Hyeon… (superglues self to JunDi ship and chants… MUST NOT BE SWAYED… MUST NOT BE SWAYED…) Jihoo asking Junpyo if he would let go of the one he loves if he’s hurting her? (Struggles from JunDi shackles and tries to cut it loose) Junpyo’s answer of no and that HE WILL HOLD ON… (scrambles to tie herself tight to the ship once again…) but what killed me was when Junpyo asked Jandi if she kept her promise by the highway and she answered “No…coz that person no longer exists…” *heartstab… angst… woe… * Take that from the stain you want to erase Junpyo…seems like she had you whipped at the erasing part…LOVE IT!

Another thing that came out well from that game is how Jaekyung is seemingly coming back to her senses… asking Junpyo to choose between love and friendship, Junpyo should have given her two choices too which are “BEAT IT or EAT IT?” and by those choices he means the ground… wahahaha!

So with Mama Kang’s tip number 107 from her evilness handbook which is to drive your enemies out of house and home by wrecking it down and Kang San finally joining his parents and telling Jandi that Junpyo still likes her which according to KDrama cliché number 481, Jandi of course, does not hear …another episode ends and we get another seven days of waiting…

Other Comments:

1. Whenever Yijung comes on, i have to rewind and check if i am still watching Boys Over Flowers… the drama is so much East of Eden that i am starting to think that he is not a part of the Flower Four but rather the Emo Four… and way to go about embarassing GaEul during their date… That is the WAY to go if he really wants to be different from his wuss of a dad… NOT!

2. I AM SCARED… VERY, VERY SCARED at the route this version is taking… I used to be confident about Junpyo and Jandi ending up together for this Kversion but with the way Junpyo is starting to get comfortable with Jaekyung and the way Jandi is starting to soften against Jihoo… i don’t even know where this drama is heading… One thing’s for sure… I would advise KBS to prepare armed guards and a moat should there be no Junpyo-Jandi ending…
